VFW post to

be chartered
Now they're trying to locate
and recruit those who fought
in fQreign countries
by ALICE DU PONT,
Times Editor
In an attempt to gather the forces, local
Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) are in the
initial stages of establishing a post in Gadsden
County. They have charter members, they have
most of the officers but they are trying to locate
and recruit some of the hundreds of veterans
who fought in foreign countries to join their
ranks.
On Saturday, October 14, from 6 p.m. to 8
p.m. at the old VFW Post on East Washington
Street, all Veterans of Foreign Wars are invited
to attend a dinner and dance. Comrade (as VFW
members refer to each other) Edward Melane
said the event is an attempt to bring together
those who served in a social setting as well as
recruit new members.
New officers will also be installed that
evening by State Commander Larry Stover, who
will be making his first official visit' to
Gadsden County.
A special tribute to World War II veterans will
be part of the program. "We're making a special
appeal to all World War II veterans. There's not
as many around as used to be, they are all in
their 70s and 80s now, but we'd sure like to
have them join us. Most of them probably don't
drive anymore that's why we are having it early
in the evening," Melane said.
If a WWII veteran wants to attend the dinner
and dance and needs transportation, call Wes
Hinson, Veteran Services Officer at 875-8661.
The tickets are free to WWII veterans, others
are $10 each.
Anyone who served honorably in the United
States armed forces in a foreign war or oversees
operation recognized by a campaign medal, in
Korea after June 30, 1949, and recipients of
hostile-fire or imminent danger pay, veterans of
WWII, the Korean, Vietnam, Persian Gulf, and
Iraq wars, Granada, Panama, Lebanon,
Afghanistan, and other smaller expeditionary
campaigns, as well as occupation duty is
qualified for membership.

County, city cooperate to help

bowling alley, restaurant build


Bradwell plans development
just west of Quincy
by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The Gadsden County Board of County
Commissioners Tuesday night gave its approval to
enter into an interlocal agreement with the City of
Quincy to provide sewer, water and gas to the


Bradwell Project just west of the Quincy city limits.
The project, which will consist of a bowling alley
and a Huddle House restaurant, will enable the
county to apply for $750,000 from the Department
of Community Affairs.
Farnita Saunders, the county's Community
Development Director, said the project will bring
22 new jobs to the county. Summit Professional
Services will administer the grant, if awarded.
In other matters:

GCSO needs money;

We're undermanned,

underpaid, Sheriff says

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
The budget has been passed and Gadsden County
Sheriff Morris Young said that while a small increase
in his budget will allow him to give bonuses and small
raises (four percent) will help, it is not nearly enough.
"I am disappointed. I wanted three million dollars," he
said. Young knew
early on, however, "W e provide
that he wasn't going
to get that this year. the bullets.
Young said he isn't "
sure what course of eputies
action he will take, nwer all Calls"
but he is determined answer all calls

want to protect the
people here. "They are doing a fantastic job, too. I
can't say enough about the commitment these officers
have," Young said, clearly passionate about the
officers he leads.
He said he is undermanned and that officers work 12-
hour shifts. The county is divided into four zones and
one deputy covers an entire zone, alone.
The Town of Havana has been nice, but they have
grown tired of backing up the deputy who must cover
unincorporated Havana, Coonbottom to Highway 12
along Post Plant Road, he said. Another zone covers
unincorporated Chattahoochee, parts of Greensboro
and Gretna.
It is not unusual for a deputy to put 200 miles on a
patrol car in a single 12-hour shift. "In all reality I need
more deputies, but I need to be able to pay people. We
have veterans who have never gotten more than a three
percent raise," he said.
What would he do with the money?
"The first thing I Would do is take care of my
officers. A lot of people don't know this but the
deputies have to buy their own guns and the other tools
they use. It cost each officer between $800 and $1,000
for the belt and the things that go with it. We will
provide them with bullets," he said, shaking his head.

76 trombones? Not at WGHS


And the band played on...
but not at full strength

by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor
Spectators at Friday's West Gadsden High School
homecoming game got a half-time show it just
wasn't performed by the home team's band.
WGHS Principal Rocky Pace said the school's
band is in a reconstruction phase and wasn't ready to
perform Friday.
"We are in a rebuilding stage of the band
program," Pace said.
Band director Ronte Harris, who transferred to
WGHS last year from Havana Middle School, said
several things contributed to the band's not playing
Friday.
After he instituted last year a requirement that band


members take a band class to be eligible to march
and play, several saw it as "a challenge of
philosophy," he said, and didn't attend. As a result,
they failed the class.
Of last year's 66 band students, 57 were active
participants and four failed the class. Two of those
transferred to Carter Parramore Academy.
This year's band consists mostly of seventh- and
eighth-graders, he said, who have had only five
weeks' instruction on the instruments they are
playing. Around 20 from last year's band, including
majorettes, musicians and flag corps members, still
belong to the group.
"I didn't feel like it would be just to put those
students out there to represent the high school,"
Harris said. "They don't have the skill level to
actually perform. I didn't feel like I would be doing
my students justice or their parents justice by having
them perform on the field or even play in the stands
... everybody wants to see people in the band dance,
but if they're not ready, the music suffers."


Harris said the school itself is still young it
opened in 2004 to serve students from Greensboro
and Chattahoochee elementaries and that last
year's graduating class consisted of 37 students.
Chattahoochee does not have a music program, he
said, and the Greensboro Elementary music teacher
holds an informal band meeting after school to teach
students percussion and wind instrument basics.
"Only about 30 percent of our school is in ninth
through 12th grades, the rest are in seventh and
eighth, and they haven't had much music training.
Greensboro Elementary has a small program the
music teacher does after school, but not a class. This
is the first time most of these kids have played an
instrument," Harris said.
"I have standards that are set by the state of
Florida. Gadsden County is not represented at the
Florida Bandmasters' Music Performance
Assessment because we're not buckling down to the
standards and teaching the fundamentals. I

Massey Drugs knows who I am

and what I need!
Very few businesses have customers as passionate as
Sherry Thompson. But she drives from Tallahassee every.
week for her prescriptions. She will not trust any other
pharmacy with her health.
Sherry became dissatisfied with the chain drug stores
she had been using-during a recent illness. Friends, who
were also loyal Massey Drugs customers, recommended
the pharmacy.
"At the time I was switching medications frequently,
and they kept up with it...all the changes in medicines and
dosages and working with several doctors and offices.
Some of these medicines were not normally stocked, and
they kept up with all the special orders. I've never had a
pharmacy give me such service!" she says.
"Here, they actually work WITH you. That consistency
of service is so necessary, and the big pharmacies just
don't offer that."
"At Massey Drugs, They Know Their Customers!"

A public hearing on a proposed
amendment to the county's land.
development code to specifically
address non-comforming uses and
structures was passed. At issue was
Whether a citizen could rebuild or
replace a structure if destroyed by
fire or acts of God. For example, a
person lives in a mobile home and
the home bums to the ground. But,
according to the Comprehensive
Plan, only four structures can be
on the parcel of land. But, the
mobile home was there before the
plan was adopted. The new code
would give the homeowner two
years to replace the structure,
otherwise the structure cannot be
replaced.
' *Approval was given of a final
plat for 39 lots at the San Bonita
Estates subdivision on 84 acres.
The property is located on the west
side of Gibson Sawmill Road
about three miles south of Havana.
, *Lawson & Associates was
hamed the (insurance) agent of
record for the county. Lawson said
he would accept the 2 percent
commission that will be offered by
Capital Health Plan. "My
understanding is that this
acceptance was not made clear in
the application. My intent was not
to negotiate for a higher
commission, but to accept what
was offered," he wrote in a letter
to commissioners.
*Saunders reported that the
county has completed eight new
housing and eight rehabilitated
units in 2004-2005 and- has
completed 11 rehabilitated homes
and 17 new homes in the 2005-
2006 fiscal year. The annual
housing report was approved by
the county commissioners and will
be transmitted to the Department
bf Community Affairs for
approval.
: *County manager Marion Brown
reported that $75,000 has been set
aside this year for non-profit
organizations for social services
and for art and culture. He
recommended that each
Commissioner submit the name of
A resident from his or her district
to serve on a citizens board that

There are two drug
investigators and four property
investigators for the entire
county. "We're making it work
because they (officers) are
putting out," he said. "Those that
leave the department tell me it's
because of money. I know how
they feel. I was a deputy getting
the low pay. That's one of the
reasons I ran for sheriff, so that I
could get them the money they
deserve."
Young said he has tried, since
taking office, to save the
taxpayers money. "We've saved
on vendors. We had to go to state
vendors instead of local vendors;
we've saved on medical costs,"
he said.
No matter how stretched his


department is, Young said,
deputies or investigators answer
all calls. Including calls from
Interstate 10. "The citizens don't
realize this but there are at least
20,000 people coming through
our county each day, that's
almost half of our county's
population, and some of those
folk have needs we must
answer."

Lee had whipped a spell over us......
It sure had my Mother worried back in
1958!
She thought Elvis was alright because he
said "Yes ma'am" and "Yes sir" in all of
his interviews and he always spoke of his
mom with such love. And she thought Bill
Haley and the Comets were acceptable
because of his cute cowlick. Carl Perkins
grew up just down the road. We might
have even picked cotton with him. Chuck
Berry was a "rags to riches" story that
Mother rather admired. Johnny Cash had
served in the army.
But Jerry Lee, she declared, was too loud,
too brash, too gyrating, too wild and was
playing the devil's music and we needed to
steer clear of him. It didn't help any that he
called himself "The Killer". It only got
worse when Mom heard his jazzed up
rendition of "Drinking Wine, Spo-Dee-O-
Dee". Setting his piano on fire on the Allen
Freed show didn't exactly enamor him with
either of my parents. And when word got
around that he had married his 13 year old
cousin before his divorce with his first wife
was final....well, that just validated all that
Mom had been saying....
Dad wasn't as concerned, "A guy living
like that won't last long. He'll bum himself
out. I just don't know how many he will
take with him." Dad wasn't on a moral
crusade. And he wasn't out to "get
anybody". If he was "way down critical"
on rock and roll music, he never mentioned
it to me. He just didn't figure anyone could
keep up that pace for any length of time
and live to be very old.
All the fledging teenagers in our little


town secretly figured Dad was right.
That's why we kept such a sharp look out
for any time he would be playing for a
dance in our area. We figured we'd better
hurry if we ever wanted to see him in
person!
Buddy Wiggleton got word that he was
going to be at the Rainbow dance hall in
Big Sandy. We were a year away from
having a driver's license so we bummed a'
ride with Alton Cunningham and lit a
shuck for Big Sandy. This was in the
summer of 1962. We didn't have girl
friends. We didn't want to dance. We had
never even been to a dance where they
charged you to get in. We just wanted to
see Jerry Lee Lewis pound that keyboard
and do a verse or two of "Breathless."
They didn't tell us until we were inside that
Jerry Lee couldn't make it.
We figured that's just ole Jerry.
On the first Saturday night in April, 1963,
he was scheduled for the Mullins Club
down in Greenfield. It was a sixteen mile
drive for us and we discussed on the way
over how they were going to get all the
folks that "was bound to come" out on that
tiny dance floor. As it turned out the
discussion was for naught-Jerry Lee didn't
show.
I was getting a little perturbed at this guy.
Later that summer he was billed into the
Oasis Club in Huntingdon. Me and Buddy
went but I waited outside until they
announced that Jerry Lee wasn't going to
,be there after all.
I was getting smarter about these Jerry
Lee Lewis sightings. On the way back
home we got to wondering if Jerry Lee
even new about these "bookings" in all
these little places in every crook and
cranny of West Tennessee. Or, was the
management just exploiting The Killer's
name to draw a crowd!
I have pondered on that one for years
now.
I have also marveled at the career of Jerry
Lee Lewis. When the Beatles hit and rock
and roll took a nosedive, The Killer
emerged a couple of years later singing
country music. It was amazing. He could
do country better than he did rock and roll!
I mean, and this might sound sacrilegious,

Bring a 'Wall of

Fame' to Gadsden

County

Dear Editor:
I would like to extend an invitation to the
citizens of Gadsden County. On September 19,
2006, I was on the county commission
meeting's agenda to present my proposal for
bringing a "Wall of Fame" to Gadsden County.
I pray and hope this idea will bring inspiration
to our youth, revenue to the county and a
state/national museum monument.
Gadsden has too many hidden treasures that
have gone unnoticed and will be forgotten. This
Wall of Fame will give the people their roses
while they are living.
Their hard work and dedication did not go
unrecognized nor will it be forgotten. I want
them to know that their spirits will live forever.
I'm asking anyone who could give me
information about or lead me to anyone who
has been a success from this county. Any form
of history: tobacco fields, Coca-Cola Company,
football, basketball and baseball players, singers,
actors, doctors, artist, track & field, daycare
centers, businesses.
Commissioner Ed Dixon said this was a good
idea and would like to see this happen for the
county. Commissioner Brenda Holt asked me
to put it together. I need the citizens of
Gadsden County to help pull this together. Our
county will be put on every map as a place to
visit.
Please contact me, Minister Alonzo Brown,
Sr., at 850-627-3135 after 5:30 p.m.

Minister Alonzo Brown, Sr.


Garden Center

helped make

wedding a delight

Dear Editor,
We are writing this letter in regards to the
Morris-Groves wedding reception held at the
Quincy Garden Center on Aug. 5, 2006; also to
express our delight in the performance of the
hostess, Betsy Edwards, that entire weekend. As
the bride and groom, we greatly appreciated
Mrs. Edwards' hands-on approach during the
ceremony and her willingness to dedicate her


editor

time and effort to make our access to the
Garden Center as comfortable and convenient
as possible. Our interaction with Besty was
pleasant and enjoyable in every instance, which
made for a better wedding experience. We
appreciate the opportunity to work with Betsy
Edwards and the opportunity to make the
beautiful Garden Center our home, if just for
one weekend. Thank you, and most of all Mrs.
Edwards, for everything you did to make our
wedding a success.
Graciously,
Paul Groves


Paying for what

we DON'T use

Letter to the Editor:
We don't mind paying for what we use, the
problem is paying for what we don't use. People
in this country/city have seen a double or triple
rise in their bills. We have been doing the same
thing as we always have, but our bills show
otherwise. So when you make a statement
saying "if you use it, you need to pay for it" that
makes us mad. Because the citizens of this
county pay you a six-digit salary, and that's all
you can say about our excessive high bill.
(Electric).
Another thing-you talk in double standard.
From my understanding you use the city vehicle
on duty and off-duty, do you pay for it? You
can use the city phone on and off-duty. Do you
pay for it? You get free gas from the city. Do
you pay for it? I am going to throw the same
thing back at you. If you use it you need to pay
for it. If people see some of the high bills some
citizen has to pay every month they wouldn't
believe it. $800.00 & $900.00 dollar bills every
month. These bills are higher than some of our
local businesses. One resident bill was $1,700
and they gave her a time limit to pay it. Using a
little humor I told her that one bill they would
have to eat, because it more important that you
and your children should live & eat. Again, I say
Power to the People, not the Electric Power.
Carol J. Price

Got something to say?

Editor and be heard!

1 arrested, several detained in school fight

A fight between students
from Hope Academy, Carter-
Parramore Academy, and
Gadsden Central Academy led
to one arrest Monday afternoon
while several others were taken


by Leslie Roberts
Times News Editor

Good things are in store for
Gretna, from all outward
appearances.
During Tuesday night's regu-
lar City Commission meeting,
commissioners approved the
reopening of the Gretna Health
Clinic.
Cannella Jefferies, director
of nursing for the Gadsden
County Health Department, told
commissioners the clinic will be
jointly operated by her depart-
ment, the Florida A&M School
of Nursing and the Florida State
University's College of
Nledicine, with help from vol-
unteer doctors and nurses from
Killearn United Methodist
Church in Tallahassee.
"The goal is to reopen
Wednesday, Nov. 1 from 1-4:30
p.m.," Jefferies said.
"Ultimately, the goal is to offer
services .at least four days a
week."
The health department will
provide family planning, mater-
nity care, treatment of sexually
transmitted diseases and child
and adult inoculations, Jefferies
said, while the other partners in
the project will provide primary
care when they come on board.
"It is part of our heritage, so
we don't want it to fall. We
don't want it to fail," Mayor
Nadine Smith said.
The clinic was closed in


Gifts of land, money make
Greensboro depot relocation
possible
The West Gadsden
Historical Society has recently
received a $35,000 grant from
Progress Energy to assist with
the cost of relocating the his-
toric Apalachicola Northern
Railroad Depot in Greensboro.
The depot was built in 1907
and is the only remaining origi-
nal depot on the A&N line
which runs from River Junction
to Port St. Joe.
Approximately 40 years
ago, the depot was moved from
its original location between
the main line and the side track
to a nearby lot. Many remem-
ber the depot being remodeled
by Nelson Clark and used as his
barbershop for many years.
Recently Progress Energy
built a transmission line
through this area of the county
and many miles of the line fol-
low the A&N railroad right-of-
way. The old depot building
(vacant barber shop) site was in
the direct line of the right-of-


to the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office and were later released to
their parents.
School resource officer Lt.
Ed McWhite said late Tuesday
afternoon they were still trying
to sort out just what happened to
spark a fight between six to
eight students.


November. Stakeholders at that
time cited a lack of financial
support, Jefferies said.
Services will be provided
free of charge to those who exist
on 300 percent below the pover-
ty level, and on a sliding scale
fee for others.
Commissioners voted 4-1,
with Helen Franks dissenting, to
fund maintenance outside the
clinic, provide the building in
which the clinic is housed as
,well as liability insurance, pro-
vide water and sewer services
and contribute $5,000.
City Manager Antonio
Jefferson suggested commis-
sioners include a formal lease
agreement in the motion to
insure there were no misunder-
standings about the city's
responsibilities, which they did.
"In recent years, we've had
just an open agreement between
the parties that wasn't memori-
alized in writing," he said.
I Franks said she was for the
reopening of the clinic, but did-
n't feel like the lease agreement
language in the motion was spe-
cific enough.
In other matters, City
Attorney Harold Knowles told
commissioners that they needed
to prepare for the proposed
expansion of the women's
prison in Gretna.
"Corrections Corporation of
America is licensed to run the
Gadsden facility they have
proposed to expand by 384 bed,


way through Greensboro.
WGHS saw the need to advo-
cate for the saving, of this piece
of history.
Following many. discus-
sions between WGHS, Progress

Energy, and St. Joe Land
Company, a nearby lot was
donated by St. Joe Land
Company and Progress Energy
contributed the grant, defraying
the cost of the relocation of the
depot.
The society is most appre-
ciative of this grant and the
property on which to relocate
the depot building. Without the
cooperation of these two corpo-
rations working with WGHS,
this saving of a piece of Florida
history would not have been
possible. Large corporations
and historic-minded folks can
pull together and accomplish
great tasks for the enhancement
of a community. The restora-
tion of the depot will be a proj-
ect of the future and the depot
will once again become an
asset to the Town of
Greensboro.


"It all started in the cafeteria.
It is my understanding that some
of the kids are not supposed to
eat at the same time as others. I
think someone said something
and one thing led to another," he
said.
In the end, however, nearly a
dozen deputies and police offi-


which would have a significant
impact on water and sewer serv-
ices and also calls for impact
fees," Knowles said. "We need
to have an agreement reflective
of our need to collect the impact
fee. This thing is on a fast
track."
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to continue their exist-
ing agreement with CCA, and to
authorize the mayor to sign the
agreement.
And in other business, KMR
Consultants, a Tallahassee con-
sulting firm hired by the city to
develop a plan for handling
water and sewer problems, road
maintenance, construction and
management, financial data and
bookkeeping and records ireten-
tion gave its final report
Tuesday.
The firm also developed a
city disaster emergency plan,
city staff classifications and pay
ranges, provided municipal
ordinance codification, created
an industrial park marketing
plan and conducted a city man-
ager search that resulted in the
hiring of Jefferson at the end of
August.
The firm outlined a correc-
tive action plan for the city's
water and sewer woes, which
date to a 1994 court-ordered
injunction over deficiencies in
city potable water and waste-
water utilities identified by the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection. The
city also needs to increase its
water production rate.
"We agree with you that
there is no greater issue in
Gretna than water and sewer
because it does impede growth,
and Gretna is ripe for growth,"
KMR manager Linda Dilworth
said.
Per KMR recommendations,
the city hired a public works
director this week. Bill Revels,
who worked for the City of
Tallahassee for 15 years, was
chosen for the job.
KMR has also worked to
plan for a site the Gretna police

things down.
Things only calmed down for
about 30 minutes, however, and
authorities were called back to
the campus in reference to a stu-
dent with a butcher's knife.
The knife was taken from the
student and he was arrested and


detained by the Department of
Juvenile Justice and taken to the
detention center in Tallahassee.
The incident was so severe
that officers had to use mace.
"The safety of the officers was
an issue," McWhite said.

Teen charged with manslaughter


Faces a dozen charges;

police allege alcohol

played role in death

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

The Florida Highway Patrol arrested
19-year-old Tercina Jordan Monday and
charged her with one count of Driving
Under the Influence manslaughter, five
counts of Driving Under the Influence
causing serious bodily injury, one count


of driving while license suspended or
revoked causing death, and five counts of
driving while license suspended or
revoked causing serious bodily harm.
Jordan's arrest was the result of an
investigation into a fatal traffic crash on
Brickyard Road in Midway on August
19., 2006.
"The high speed crash caused the
death of Camellia Byrd, 16, and serious
injuries to five other passengers," accord-
ing to a report released by the FHP.
The car Jordan was driving, a 2006
Hyundai Sonata, was travelling west on
Brickyard Road at a speed in excess of 25


miles per hour. The vehicle traveled off
the road and onto the shoulder where it
struck a tree with its right side, causing it
to rotate clockwise, according to police
reports.
Byrd was pronounced dead at the
scene of the crash.
Also injured in the accident were:
Jamelia Chantler, 16; Whitney Marshall,
13; Tinisha Marshall, 15; Monica Steele,
12; and Christeegia Price, 15.
Jordan's bail was set at $50,000. She
has bonded out of the Gadsden County
Jail.

Cecka Green said.
"Our goal was to identify a
location for construction of a

the Gadsden, County

several students douse their eyes
with streams of water from

EMS was also called to the
sheriff's main office to.check a
student who reported that he had

"We didn't know whether he
was hit in the head or whether he
fell, we wanted to take the prop-

Cancer month personal for this Quincy family


Virginia Lovett remembers

the pain, the treatments...

and telling her kids.

by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


October is Breast
Cancer Awareness month.
Each year thousands of
women in Florida are diag-
nosed with breast cancer.
One in nine will die. But
;breast cancer is no longer a
-death sentence.
The medical profession
urges women to conduct a
self breast examination
each month and to have
their breasts examined by
a professional at least once
a year. Mammograms are
encouraged yearly after
age forty. But, if there is a
risk of breast cancer, such
as a family member, mam-
mograms should start
early. The woman in this.
:article is surviving breast
,cancer.


For two months Virginia
Lovett thought the pain near
her armpit was the caused by a
cyst. The pain got so bad there
were days she could not raise
her arm. "Sometimes it hurt so
bad, I couldn't get out of bed,"
she said. Then, one night in
June 2005, the pain sent her to
the emergency room at
Gadsden Community
Hospital.
They examined her and
sent her back home with
instructions to see her personal
physician.
A month later, still in pain
and no visit to her physician,
she went to the emergency
room at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital. "The doctor took one
look at me and said, "I'm not
going to touch you. I know
what's wrong," she said. The
emergency room doctor sent
her to a specialist, in cancer.
"They found six lumps in
my ,breast and one under the
arm (the lymph nodes). I had
never had problems with my
breasts before. I.never felt any

-lumps. I didn't bother with the monthly self-exams because my doc-
tor examined my breasts regularly," she said.
On August 15 the specialist told her that she was sorry but she
had bad news. She said," 'I'm sorry but your breast is badly dam-
aged and we have to remove it' and I started crying. All I could think
about was my kids," she said.
The diagnosis was made on August 15 and the surgery was
August 22. At the time Lovett was only 31 years old and she had
five children. Through her fear and questions, she knew she had to
tell the children. After she returned home from the hospital she
called the children together for a family meeting.
"I explained to them everything that had happened and what they
had to' expect. Still, it was hard. I told them everything was going to
be alright, but I didn't know either," she said.
"Rynecia, my eight-year-old, thought I was going to die. Virgil,
.the 11-year-old hugged me a lot and Victoria, my 13-year-old
:refused to talk about it," she said. She had her fiance of 15 years,
:Ronald Taylor, to lean on. "He was with me all of the time. He kept
,telling me everything was going to be alright," she said.
Taylor cooked, cleaned, and took care of the kids when Lovett
was too sick from the chemotherapy and the radiation. Her mother,
Jackie Gordon, drove her to Tallahassee for her daily treatments. "It
was really hard on her, too. My brother, James, was there for me. I
had excellent family support and help. If it had not been for my fam-
ily, I don't think I could have made it," she said.
The chemotherapy took its toll. Lovett said there were days when
she couldn't keep any food down. She often couldn't bear to smell
food cooking. Ronald ran to her bedside to help her through each
episode. Meanwhile she worried that her children were "hearing"
her sickness. When Rynecia sometimes combed her hair it would
come out in big clumps.
Then, in the middle of her chemotherapy and the radiation treat-
ments, Lovett's apartment burned down just before Christmas. "We
lost everything. All of the gifts were gone, the tree, and even some
of the food we had bought for holiday dinners. I began to wonder,
what could happen next?" she said, adding, "I couldn't move in with
'my mother with five kids."
As 2006 rolled around, things began looking up. "First, the apart-
ment complex where she lived found her another apartment right
away. "My friends and family helped us get furniture to get started
again. Then, on February 2, I finished my radiation treatments and
on March 1 I finished the chemotherapy treatments," she said.
Her hair started to grow back and she had a bushy thick afro of
healthy hair. She still has to go to her doctor on a regular basis. The
cancer, she said, was almost as deep as the breast bone. There is
some swelling but that was expected.
Lovett never thought too much about cancer, especially breast
cancer. She overlooked one important factor. "My great aunt and my
aunt on my father's side both had breast cancer," she said.

Big Bend Hospice celebrates

23 years of care for Gadsden


Twenty-three years ago, a
group of local volunteers saw a
dream take form when Big Bend
Hospice was licensed as the
independent nonprofit provider
of hospice care for Gadsden
County and the other seven
counties of the Big Bend area.
From a small group of dedi-
cated volunteers who knew
there was a better way to care
for those at the end of their
lives, our community has seen
hospice grow to meet the needs
of hundreds.
On Thursday, Oct. 26 from 5
to 7 p.m., the public is invited
the Big Bend Hospice office at
105 N. Jackson Street in Quincy
to commemorate 23 years of
compassionate care and excel-
lent service.
Everyone is invited to stop


by, enjoy cake and punch and
meet the new president and
CEO for Big Bend Hospice,
.Carla Braveman, R.N., M.Ed.,
CHCE.
There will be a gift table for
donations of patient-care com-
fort gifts. Many patients who
cannot afford basic comfort
items like nutritional supple-
ments such as Ensure (r),
Depends (r), unscented lotions,
lap quilts, bed jackets, or even a
cuddly stuffed animal.
Big Bend Hospice accepts
patients regardless of their abili-
ty to pay, so donations to the
patient care fund and comfort
care items from our community
can really mean a lot.
Today, Big Bend Hospice has

'If they call me I'll come and catch them.


I can catch a rattler as long as he's coiled'


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

It's common knowledge that at this time
of year snakes are .crawling-all kinds of
snakes.
In the past two weeks, however, there
have been several sightings of the diamond-
back rattler. People have reported seeing
them crossing highways, along roadsides
and in their yards.
They're out, they're long and they're fat.
"It's just that time of the year. All animals
know when winter's coming and snakes are
no different. They are cold-blooded and they
are looking for someplace warm for the win-
ter," said Willie' Saucier, Gadsden County's
Animal Control Officer.
The snakes are looking for dens.
Sometimes they make it into a gopher hole
and the two co-habitat for the winter. Other
times, the den could be a pile of old boards
in the back yard, old cars, or anywhere they
can go in, stay undisturbed and warm for the
next few months.

"If they call me, I will come and catch
them. I can catch a rattler as long as he's
coiled, throw dirt on him or keep bothering
them so they can stay coiled," he said.
Diamondbacks are not aggressive,
Saucier said, all they really want to do is be
on their way. "The main thing is, if people
don't want to see snakes, they need to clean
up. Remove piles of wood, old cars and cut
the grass.
A man found a snake in his yard and I
told him to remove some old pipes he had in
the back yard. He called me back to say that
when he removed the pipes, he found five
more snakes. They had. made a nest," he
said.
While you may keep your yard clean
neighbors can be a problem.
"The thing about snakes is that they can't
decide where your property ends and mine
begins. Last week, the snake that was in the
person's yard in the city limits probably
came from next door where the grass was
very high.
By the time I got there the snake had


slithered off into a field where their grass
was high," Saucier said.
Throughout the county he said he has
noticed lately that people are cutting trees
and leaving them. "Limbs and downed trees
become an invitation for snakes," he said.
Saucier suggested that homeowners use a
product called "Snake-Away" which he
often uses, or lime that can be spread around
the perimeter of the home or, in some cases,
bug spray.
"I say they can use bug spray if they see
a snake inside the house (which is where
most of his snake calls come from) or in a
confined area and they want to draw them
out. Snakes are very sensitive animals and
they can't stand scents," he said.
Still, the creatures might be found any-
where in the fall. A few years ago, Saucier
captured a water moccasin downtown.
"If people don't know snakes, they
should not approach them or try to catch
them. Call us," he said. The number to call
is'875-4979.


QFD plans Fire Prevention Week activities


In an effort to battle home
fires before they start in Quincy,
the fire department is taking a
lead role in NFPA's Fie
Prevention Week, October 8 -
14. By hosting an Open House
that will entertain and educate
the public, the fire department
hopes to raise awareness of key
fire safety issues, helping atten-
dees prevent fires and fire
injuries, especially at home.
"Many people don't realize
that they are at greater danger
from fire at home than anywhere
else," says Chief Howard Smith.
"Fortunately, there are many
things residents can do to turn
that around and make their
homes safer. Fire Prevention
Week is the time where we reach
out to the community one-on-
one, teaching people of every
age how to prevent fires. This
year our theme is "Prevent
cooking fires. Watch what you

According to Chief Howard
Smith, the fire department has

"County at Heart"

I have not met all, of the candidates running for
county commissioner district 2, I'm sure they are
fine men, but I have met Jim Kellum and I feel he
will serve well in that position. I met Jim Kellum-
a few years ago and found him to be an outstand-'
ing speaker and a man of his word. We need
someone to speak out for the entire-county not just
for a given few and will also come back to the
community to make sure we are all included in the
democratic process. I have found Jim Kellum to
be a man that helps others and demonstrates it
with his deeds instead of just words as many of
our previous commissioners. Mr. Kellum has a
history of hard work, running a business while
thinking of others demonstrates the character this
man possesses. We have commissioners on our
commission that are thinkers and doers not just
yes people like some others would like you to
believe. Our county is on positive route to a suc-
cessful future with daylight just around the comer
for all. So let's keep up the good work by electing
a man that will help our commission bring home
the bacon and leave out the fat.

Thanks for you encouraging words and spiritual
support. Signed Pastor John Battles 442-4684

he could sing "You Win Again" better than Hank
Williams.
And, if you turn to the gospel field, Jerry Lee does
the best version of "When The Saints Go Marchin'
In" that you'll ever hear. His talent is just about as
good as he says it is! He's dynamite on rhythm and
blues and rockabilly. I've never heard him do folk
music, but I guarantee you, he could sing "Puff the
Magic Dragon" better than Peter, Paul and Mary.
In 1972 1 drove to Birmingham, Alabama, because
Jerry Lee Lewis was supposed to do a show for
WVOK's Shower of Stars. Much to my surprise he
showed up! And he didn't disappoint. What a night!
I don't think anyone there was too worried about
who he married in 1957. Or that he didn't show up
at Big Sandy in 1962. Or that the Beatles had moved
him (and a lot of others) off the rock charts in the
mid 60's. He brought the house down! He
entertained! He rocked!
The only thing he didn't do was set the piano on
fire at the end. I figured age was slowing him down
a little.....
Elvis is dead. Carl is dead. Johnny Cash is dead.
So is Bill Haley....and half of the Beatles. Jerry Lee
Lewis has just this week released another album. It
is appropriately entitled "Last Man Standing". Isn't
it amazing how life turns out!
I thought of my Dad and his admonition back in
1958. Ole Jerry Lee has fooled us all.....or, as he has
so aptly reminded us for fifty years now. "The Killer
Rocks On....."

HEALTH SNUFFED OUT BY


TOBACCO-RELATED ILLNESS?

A Florida jury has found that Tobacco companies engaged in extreme and

outrageous conduct in the sale and marketing of cigarettes. Now, the

Florida Supreme Court has held that the tobacco companies are liable for

their conduct and individuals suffering from smoking related illnesses

may pursue claims for compensatory and punitive damages.


If you or a loved one developed a smoking related illness

between 1990 and 2000, call your Florida Consumer Justice Attorneys

for a free consultation.

the City of Midway to provide (uncompensated)
fire protection. There is an agreement with the
county and the city to provide fire service to
unincorporated areas within a five mile radius of the
city limits.
There are mutual aid agreements between the City
of Quincy and other municipalities, but not Midway.
I'm sure the $200,000 spent on folks in Midway


would have made the Quincy woman (who has to
leave home everytime we have a hard rain) feel
better if that money had gone toward solving her
drainage problems, after all she has been a
taxpaying citizen in the city limits for many years.
It's fine to be helpful and gracious and neighborly
and all that, but with our own utility bills going
through the roof and no signs of letting up in the
near future, Quincy commissioners are obligated to
look out for the citizens of Quincy first. Simply, the
bottom line is that the people who live in Quincy
can't afford anymore to take care of a large segment
the rest of the county.

morning by participating in the statewide attempt to read their way into the Guinness Book of
Records. (Photo by Alice DuPont)



Reading for a record


by ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor

Middle school students
throughout Florida, almost
200,000 of them, were anxious
Friday morning. In Quincy, at
the Gadsden Elementary
Magnet School, some of Bridget
Franklin's students were a little
nervous, too. The entire sixth
grade class, all 16 of them, sat in
four rows, four deep, in the
Media Center ready to make his-
tory. At 11:25 a.m. they partici-
pated in a statewide attempt
make history for "Most People
Reading Aloud Simultaneously
in Multiple Locations."
"This is very exciting for us."
said Carolyn Griffin, the
school's media specialist and
organizer of the event for the
school.
The students read an excerpt
from the 11th Chapter of a novel
by Miami writer and humorist
Dave Barry and author Ridley
Pearson, called "Peter And The
Starcatchers". They were joined
by students across the state, all
reading the same passage at the
same time. The reading exercise
was verified at two independent
judges who had to be physically
in the room and witness the stu-
dents reading. They were also
video taped and the tape was
sent, along with the notarized
signatures of the witnesses, to
the Department of Education.
Whether or not the record was
broken will be released later this
week.
Kristina Allen, 11, likes to
read so seven paragraphs they
were to read didn't bother her.
"It's for a good cause, I guess
when you make history it's a
good cause. We practiced and
were told to be on our best
behavior," she said. Her friend,
a student at Havana Middle
School, was also going to partic-
ipate in the event.
Patrice Delevoe wasn't all
that impressed about getting into
the Guinness Book. Her reading
enjoyment depends on the mate-
rial and she wasn't feeling
"Peter And The Starcatchers"
even after practicing at home.
When Charis Fitzgerald told his
parents about Friday's attempt,
he said they thought the idea
was "great." He said he was
very confident that the kids in
Florida would break the old


record set by 155,528 students
from 737 school throughout the
United Kingdom in 2004.
Thursday's attempt was the
brainchild of a teacher at
Jacksonville's Mandarin Middle
School who read about it and
felt that Florida students could
break that record.
Everyone bought into it.
Governor Jeb Bush,
Commissioner of Education
John Winn, and administrators
and teachers throughout Florida
joined in. They signed up on the
internet, called fellow teachers
and set the ball in motion that
ended Thursday morning.
Several hundred students joined
Bush and Winn at Disneyworld
to read together.
"I'm fired up and I hope
you're fired up, too. We're
excited about breaking the
record. Reading makes the
world go around as far as I am
concerned. Reading allows us to
do anything we want to do," he
told the students at Disneyworld
and the thousands who were
watching on school televisions
throughout the state. Bush said
the goal statewide is for every
student to read on grade level by
2012.
Jose Cruz, and Brian
Williams were both excited

Big Bend Hospice is so much
more than caring for those with

ry. "When I get home tonight,
I'm going to tell my parents they
are looking at a kid who made
history today," Cruz said.
Williams said he could hardly
wait to tell his friends what he
did Thursday morning.
"We're getting national
attention and we're getting
international attention. For each
school that participated I will
send that school a framed cer-
tificate to hang in the office so
that, for years to come, people
who see it will know that your
school participated in making
history," Winn said.
History or not, Brianna
Alexander said she was just
plain nervous minutes before the
students began the countdown.
"I read over it six times and my
Mom told me to just relax and
read. I'm trying to get ready,"
she said, rubbing her stomach.
When it was over, Brianna
and her classmates yelled and
raised their collective hands in
the air. Their teacher and the
media specialist gave them a big
thumbs up. Then as if on cue,
they all disappeared and headed
for the lunchroom. History-
making, took a back seat to
lunch. They would just have to
marvel at their feat later.

VFW
Continued from Page 1

Melane said VFW members are
among the elite of those who
served in the military because
they fought on foreign soil. "This
is the second oldest organization
in te United States. All we have
(money) is what we raise and we
use that to take care of our own.
That's why it's so important that
we get as many as can to join
with us. This is a very, very
important organization," he said.
Nationwide, there are more than
9,000 posts in the United States,
the District of Columbia, Latin
America, the Pacific area, and
Europe. The Gadsden County
post is officially Post # 12054.
Realizing that a lot of people no
longer want to join organizations,
Melane said there are plenty of
good reasons to join the local
VFW. He said the orgainzation
supports veterans, works to
improve the quality of life of
veterans in the community, and
shares a unique fellowship.
The organizations also has one
of the strongest lobbyist in the
nation. "We are a collective voice
and speak out on behalf of
veterans, we distribute foreign
policy and defense updates from
our prospective, and work for full
accounting of veterans of all
wars," he said.

Rowan speaks at Adult
Awareness Day

The Gadsden Technical
Adult Education Program held
Adult Awareness day on Friday,
Sept. 22.
The guest speaker was Bruce
C. Rowan, president of Premier
Bank of Quincy. Rowan pre-
sented valuable tips and timely
advice along with a comprehen-
sive knowledge of the products
of the banking industry.
The Adult Education students
were very receptive and posed
many interesting questions dur-


The new post hopes to do some
of the things that the old post
could not, such as Military
Assistance Programs where they
will oversee the adoption of
military units by the local post,
distribute pre-paid telephone
cards to active duty troops and
hospitalized veterans, and
prepare care packages at the Post
level to be shipped oversees to
troops.
The VFW can also help those
returning find jobs through the
National Veterans Employment
Section which works to ensure
that veterans have preference in
federal and other government
hiring and VetJobs.com which
provides job-hunting assistance,
as well as resume and application
letter writing aids.
"We want prospective VFW
members to know that we do a
lot more than just sit around at
meetings," he said. Active VFW
members can be found
throughout the community. Some
of their community services
include, but are not limited to:
*VA Voluntary Service:
Members donate many hours per
year through a volunteer network
at VA medical centers.
*National Volunteer Efforts:
Members participate annually in
such projects as Make A
Difference Day, National
Volunteer Week, Toys for Tots,
and March of Dimes.

Jackson, Williams,

Burns have big game

in 31-21 win
Ron Burns rushed for 163 yards and Ronnie
Jackson and Chris Williams scored two touch-
downs each in helping the West Gadsden Panthers
to a 31-21 football win over Freeport Friday night.
The game played on the West Gadsden campus
was tied at 21 at the half as the teams see-sawed
back and forth in the scoring department.
The Bulldogs took and early 7-0 lead that set
the stage for Jackson's first t.d., one he got on a 68
yard kick-off return. Williams then scored his first
t.d. on a 2 yard run before Freeport came back to
:tie it at 14. Jackson then sailed 31 yards for a
score putting the Panthers up 21-14. The Bulldogs
answered again tieing the game at 21 by the half.
Jose Caldron kicked the extra point following
all first half West Gadsden touchdowns and added
another extra point when Williams 1 yard plunge
put the Panthers up 27-21 late in the third quarter.
Caldron nailed a 37 yard field goal with 3:25
left in the game to seal the win.
Defensively Jackson had a pass interception
and Alden Bradley had 10 tackles and 2 sacks to
lead the way.
"It was a very import district win for us."
Panther head coach Robert Jackson said. "We've
got another import district one this week when we
travel to Wewahitchka. We need all our fans to
follow us there."
West Gadsden's record is 3-2 and 3-0 in District
1-1A.

Tornados use running

game in 31-20 win
Bay High unleashed a bevy of running backs
Friday night in rolling up 253 yards of rushing
behind a big front line in route to a 31-20 win over
East Gadsden in a District 2-3A game, played at
Panama City's Tommy Oliver Field. Bay had 4
backs rush for over 50 yards each as they rolled up
253 yards on the ground.
East Gadsden had 169 yards rushing and scored
first in the game on a 5 yard Darius Jackson dash
in the first quarter. Before the quarter was over the
Tornados had answered that when LaDarius Hand

jaunt. Bay then went up a touchdown when
Ramone Sprull got a 7 yard scoring run, also in the
first quarter.
Josh Sostheim's 32 yard field goal made it 17-
6 Bay mid-way the second quarter. Micah
Brown's 45 yard pass to Jackson later in the stan-
za made it 17-12. East Gadsden threatened again
late in the first half but was held off.
Hand's scoring run came from 1 yard out in the
third quarter to make it 24-12 in Bay's favor.
East Gadsden answered that when Brown hit
Kendre McCloud with a 45 yard scoring play that
had it 24-18 early in the fourth quarter. It became
24-20 when Ron Gordon passed to Jackson for a
2-point conversion.
East Gadsden had a chance to take the lead
but was foiled by a pass interception. Hand then
scored on a 21 yard jaunt to wrap up the district
win for the Tornados.
Brown finished with 216 passing yards and 78
rushing. Jackson had 107 in receiving and 68

25-22, 25-23.
Maranatha got the win from
Munroe in a hard fought match.
Maranatha won the first game 25-
22, lost the second one 19-25,
won the third 25-10 and then ral-
lied in the fourth 25-19 to take the
match. Mallary Taylor led the
Lady Cats on the floor as the sen-

Tigers prowl
Shanks scored quick and often
to trounce Havana 42-0.
Dontarious'Gee scampered 15
yards to start the scoring. PAT by
Terrell Dantley made it 8-0. OJ
Johnson connected with Tedrick
Murray on a pass to run it to 14-0
to end the quarter.
The defense got into the act
when Walter Reddick scooped up
a fumble and rambled for a
touchdown. Curtis Alexander
sacked Havana in the zone for a
safety. OJ connected with Gee for
a 35-yd score, followed by
Murray's PAT, sensing a victory.
OJ kept a keeper to push the
Tigers to 36-0 at the half. Murray
fooled the Bears' defense with a
21-yd end around for the submis-
sion score. The Tiger defense led
by Gee"s 8 tackles remained
unscored upon, along with a
bench-clearing squad.

defeated four opponents in two
matches last week. The team
took a three way match over
NFC and Godby shooting a 164
that bettered NFC by 29 strokes.

to lead the way to a team score
of 170 and a victory over

defense, then took control of
the game." Reep continued. "It
was very satisfying."
Offensively Dontavius
Johnson had a large game rush-
ing for 162 yards and 4 touch-
downs. The Bobcat junior
scored on runs of 1 and 5 yards
in the first half and got in twice
in the second half on scampers
of 35 and 5 yards.


The play that broke the
halftime tie was a 73 yard punt
return by Cody Watson that put
Munroe up for good.
Heath Tolar who rushed
for 86 yards scored a fourth
quarter t.d. on a 3 yard plunge.
William Hackney wrapped
up the Bobcat scoring by kick-
ing 3 conversions.
Jason Cook, Colby Tyus,
and Hackney had some big
blocking nights that helped
Munroe roll up over 320 yards
of scrimmage offense and 90
more on kick returns.


Defensively Bryant Tolar
was in on 10 tackles and Heath
Tolar 8. Johnson had 6 and
Cook, Clay Hamm, and Watson
were in on 5.
The punting of Hackney
was also important as the junior
booted several that gave Aucilla
poor field position.
Munroe has an off week
and will be preparing for district
foe John Paul II whom they'll
play on October 13 at Corry
Field. A win by Munroe would
give them a play-off berth.


East Gadsden girls basketball players

invited to Super Select Basketball Camp


By Jari V. Lewis
The East Gadsden High
School Girls Basketball pro-
gram put its mark on the map
this past weekend when highly
respected athletes Traci Lewis,
Chelsea McMillan and Jasmine
Grice participated in the USA
Stars Super Select 200 in
Mableton, Ga.
The young ladies attended
the "by invitation only" event at
Whitefield Academy and show-
cased their talents along with
200 other female athletes from
across the southeast region.
They did this while under the
scrutiny of college coaches,
recruiters, and WNBA players.
The format required the girls
to be split up into 16 teams and
they were not allowed to play on
the same team. They each had
to play one game in three differ-
ent sessions. After the three
games, Lewis and McMillan
made it to the top 60 players of
the exposure camp and were
invited to the "Best of the Best"
All-American Camp in early
July.
Lewis, McMillan, and Grice
are all East Gadsden Girls
Basketball players coached by
Timothy Brown, however, they
are also members of the Lady
Superfriends basketball team, a
summer league program also
coached by Brown.
This past summer, the team
won the Florida Sunshine State
Games High School Division
Championship in Miami,


Florida and then won the
Southeast Regional National
Championship in Hoover,
Alabama.
It was their winning ways
during the summer which led to
the three being invited to the
Super Select.
All three girls said that they
were honored to be selected to
participate in the event and had
a lot of fun. "I felt even thought
it was a showcase tournament, I
still played as a team player and
I didn't have to play selfishly,"
McMillan said Sunday, upon
returning to Gadsden County.
EGHS basketball player
Deondra Watson went along for
the experience and came away
with more than she bargained.
"I learned that a lot of people
Stake this game very seriously...I1
realize that it's something more
important than I ever thought it
was before and I appreciate my
talent even more."
"It was a great experience,"
Grice added. "I learned a lot of
things that I'll be able to bring
back to my basketball season."
Lewis said she could hardly
believe the status that she's
attained on the national level. "I
was amazed that I was cho-
sen....It made me feel like I
really have something going for
myself."
Not only were the girls hon-
ored, but so were their parents
and coach. Lewis' mom,
Denise, said she wants people to
understand the magnitude of


what the girls have been able to
accomplish. "These girls met
the FHSAA requirements,
meaning that these girls aren't
only just good athletes, but they
met the eligibility requirements
in academics by maintaining a
2.5 minimum gpa and they had
above average SAT and ACT
scores."
Coach Brown, affectionately
known as "Coach Gut", is in
awe of his athletes. "I believe
these are the best girls to have
ever played basketball in
Gadsden County," he said.
"You have to be good to be
invited here... For them to be
selected as All-Stars, I guarantee
you, they will be on somebody's
college campus by the end of the
school year," Brown said.
Grice's dad, Vince, summed
up the weekend best. "I thought
it was a perfect way for our girls
to play in a competitive
tournament with players from
across the nation and showcase
their talent and let them know
that they can compete with any-
body, anywhere, anytime," he
said.
The players and families
would like to thank the follow-
ing for financial contributions
and support: Gadsden County
Superintendent Reginald James,
the Gadsden County Men of
Action, Bruce James, Senator Al
Lawson, Commissioner Ed
Dixon, School Board Member
Charlie Frost, and Gerthart H.
Lewis.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag


*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct
Automotive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.


*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best Part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate your supporting us. Come
by or call.

Christopher Columbus, the son of a wool merchant and weaver, was born in Genoa, Italy. At the young age of fourteen
he set sail to the sea for the first time. On one of his voyages in 1470, there was a shipwreck off of the coast of Portugal. He
was able to swim to the shore, and it he made that country his home.
Between 1477 and 1482, Columbus made merchant voyages as far away as Iceland and Guinea. But in 1484, his "Enterprise
of the Indies" idea fell on deaf ears when he presented it to King John of Portugal. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Spain, where
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, known as the Crown of Castile, became interested in his very adventuresome voyage
ideas. On August 2,1492, Columbus set sail in search of the East Indies. The voyage was financed by the king and queen. The
obtained the money for the voyage by demanding that the city of Palos, Spain pay back a debt owed to the Crown of Castile, by
providing two ships for the voyage. Columbus's home country of Italy provided the rest of the financial backing for the journey. It
was for this reason that the Spanish monarchs did not actually have to spend money from the country's treasury.
Christopher Columbus and a ninety man crew traveled aboard three ships on the trip to the New World. The ships were
named The Nina, The Pinta, and the largest ship in which Columbus commanded, The Santa Maria. Columbus never actually
arrived on the mainland of the Americas, which he believed to be the Indies, until his third voyage to the new world. On Christ-
mas Day of 1492, the Santa Maria sank off of the coast of Hispaniola. On January 16, 1493 Columbus set sail back for Spain
aboard the Nina, arriving there on March 4th of the same year. His second voyage departed for the New World in September of
1493 with 17 ships. The ships carried people and supplies to begin colonization. Columbus would sail back and forth between
the New and Old World's two more times before his death in Valladolid, Spain on May 20th, 1506. He was fifty-five years old.
Columbus Day is celebrated in honor of the voyages that Columbus made. Though he was not the first person to discover the
Americas, he is recognized as one of the most important contributors to colonization. He was the first European successful in
efforts to colonize the New World. He explored parts of the Caribbean and on his third voyage discovered the mainland of South
America. He never actually found North America, or a passage to China, in which he hoped to find. This was because what he
believed to be the Indies, was actually the entirely different continent of South America, 'C S 1 oC k

ing kids safe and healthy, help-
ing them learn, and relieving

during the afternoon hours.
Many former parents, support-
ers and community members are

prizes, entertainment and food.

of all the services we offer our customers. It makes it easy for you to select the perfect
wedding or shower gift because you know it's exactly what the bride is looking for.
The engaged couple registers their preferences in china, crystal, flatware and giftware.
We record this and update the list, as gifts are purchased, to avoid duplicates.
Visit us the next time you're I.. .;., for wedding or shower gifts. We'll help you select
a gift the bride really wants. .. ...n gift-wrap it. And the service is free!

The Quincy Music Theatre
opens it's 24th season with the
production of "big, the
musical" at The Leaf Theatre
on Friday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m.
The 1987 hit movie bursts
onstage in this vibrant, funny
and touching musical. When
frustrated adolescent Josh
Baskin wishes he were "big"
and wakes up the next morning
a 30-year-old man, he
discovers there's much more to
being an adult than he's
bargained for and learns we
must all grow up at our own
pace, in our own time.
A witty, moving, insightful
book by John Weidman and a
dazzling, energetic, heartfelt,
contemporary score by David
Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr.
makes this already classic
motion picture fantasy an
unforgettable theatrical
experience. "big, The Musical"
holds universal appeal for
audiences of all ages.
Directed by Jimmy Kontos
with musical direction by
Maria Hanvy, "big, the
musical" will play Oct. 6, 7 &
8 and Oct. 13, 14 & 15-with
curtain at 8 p.m. for Friday and
Saturday performances and 3
p.m. for Sunday matinees.
Capital City Bank is the
corporate sponsor of this show.
Reservations can be made by
telephoning the theatre box
office at 875-9444 or on the
internet by following the links
at qmtonline.com Please leave
a message if the box office is
not open and you will be
contacted promptly. Ticket
prices at the door are $15 for
adults, $12 for seniors (55 up)
and $10 for students. Individual
ticket prices are discounted $1
each if reservations are made
before the day of performance.
Reservations are suggested for
all performances to ensure the
best seats.

nomenal Miss Havana Middle School. Michael is the son of April

would still represent Havana Middle well.


Robert F. Munroe Day
School's John Dooner and Julia

nomination for the prestigious
Wendy's High School Heisman

The program, awarded in
conjunction with the collegiate

achievements of the nation's top
high school seniors both in and
out of the classroom.
Headmaster Michael S. Knight
nominated these two promising
leaders for their academic apti-
tude, athletic talent and excep-
tional commitment to their
school and communities.
"At Munroe, we prepare our
students for success by encour-
aging them to develop in all
areas of their lives. Wendy's
High School Heisman is the ulti-
mate award we can bestow on
our students for their achieve-
ments throughout high school,"
said Knight.
John is the son of Michael
and Jacqueline Dooner of
Havana. He has earned a 3.88
GPA and involved in many
school and community activi-
ties.
John is in his fourth year of
Key Club in which he has
served as the junior board mem-
ber, and is currently the vice-
president. He is in Beta Club for
the fourth year as well. He is a
three year varsity basketball
player and a six year member of
the golf team where he has
received awards for "Most
Improved" and the Coach's
Award. In the junior year John


was a homecoming representa-
tive on the court. He has partic-
ipated in numerous community
activities including Special
Olympics, Habitat for
Humanity, and "Adopt a
Highway."
Other honors received by
John include "Scholar Athlete of
the Year" as a sophomore, the
Frederick Douglass/ Susan B.
Anthony Award, and
Presbyterian College Fellow.
John is a member of the First
